In a letter obtained by TMZ and Page Six, Jamie Lynn's attorney, Bryan J. Freedman, responded to the cease-and-desist letter from Britney's attorney, Mathew Rosengart. Freedman began by referencing Britney's latest Instagram post, in which she stated she should have "slapped [Jamie Lynn] and mamma right across your f*cking faces" and "whipped your ass," calling them "cyber bullying which cause death threats to Jamie Lynn and her family."
He continued, "It was also disappointing to see your Letter plastered all over the media, as it would have certainly benefited all of the people involved and their respective children, if there was a private forum to try and redress any grievances."
Freedman went on to claim that because Britney and her attorney have not read the book, the cease-and-desist "fails to specify any legal wrongdoing whatsoever." He later added that his client described Britney as "a kind, supportive, and a protective sister, whom Jamie Lynn looked to as a second mother."
"Your claim that Jamie Lynn has no right to tell her story is not only insensitive but not supported by the law. Jamie Lynn is a member of the Spears family. Your Letter ignores a critical fact: Jamie Lynn has suffered through her own experiences, and her own trauma. Had you taken the time to read the Book prior to sending your Letter, you would know that the Book is not about Britney, but instead about Jamie Lynn's own experiences growing up in the same family and describing what life for her was like as part of that family," Jamie Lynn's attorney stated.
